Publisher's Summary

Conducting a strange and urgent experiment on the Artic ice field, a team of scientists has planted 60 powerful explosive charges that will detonate at midnight. But before they can withdraw to the safety of their base camp, a shattering tidal wave breaks loose the ice on which they are working. Now they are hopelessly marooned on an iceberg during a violent winter storm. The bombs beneath them are buried irretrievably deep...and ticking. And they discover that one of them is an assassin with a mission of his own. Here's a stunning and suspenseful thriller about humanity's continuous and sometimes futile battle against nature from one of the most popular authors in America.

absolutely the worst koontz so far, nothing to add to the previous reviewer. get "the face" which takes some time to get into, but is well worth it. actually, I have listened to 60 percent of the audiobooks by koontz here and read another 5 or so books by him, they are all decent. "life expectancy" is also not bad at all. obviously, this is a koontz-fan writing, but this one was written more than 10 years ago and is very weak.

Not a Typical Koontz

Icebound was a nice departure from the typical paranormal or extraterrestrial story lines. I enjoyed the deviation. Of course, I love all of Dean's books, so I'm a bit biased.
